The mid-1990s saw a massive rise of Sachin Tendulkar, arguably the greatest batsman of all time. That was the time he scored tons at will and decimated every opposition. Back in 1998, he scored two superb centuries against the Australians in Sharjah, that took the world by a storm.

The first one took India into the final of the triangular series, and has more popularly been remembered as the ‘Desert Storm’. Tendulkar went berserk that day, and took India within the touching distance of a victory. While the other one, in the final, saw India win the final against Australia. He smashed 134, on his birthday, to hand India the trophy.

In one of those innings, on the other end was VVS Laxman, who witnessed one of the best ODI innings of all times. Now a part of SRH, Laxman visited the Sharjah Stadium once again, and took to Twitter to recall those memories.

“Coming back to Sharjah after a long time. Whenever I walk on this field memories of those two special 100s from @sachin_rt comes back to my mind, rushing like a #desertstorm,” Laxman wrote on Twitter with a photograph of him at the stadium.

The IPL 2020 is due to start on September 19 in the UAE, and the three venues for the event are Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah.
